"Guardrail" as written by Anthony S Raneri, Andrew Robert Elderbaum, Jack A O'shea and James Robert Mitchell....
You wanted to know just what makes me tick,
I guess I could say that,
You and your bullshit,
Are pushing me towards an explosion
I guess you're what drives me

I wish I could ride you,
Drive you too fast into a sharp curve,
Break your neck like you broke my will,
The guardrail will take you home

I guess you get caught up,
In the day-to-day,
Drama of being you
To notice me,
And what's become of my eyes,
The vessels are an angry red,
Just like the blood from my lips, as I chew on them

I wish I could ride you,
Drive you too fast into a sharp curve,
Break your neck like you broke my will,
The guardrail will take you home

I keep your picture as a reminder, of what I wish I wasn't
It's like a fun house mirror version of myself, through those fucked up eyes of yours

I wish I could ride you,
Drive you too fast into a sharp curve,
Break your neck like you broke my will,

The guardrail,
The guardrail,
The guardrail,
will take you home

    General CommentThe perfect description of hatred, of a burning need to destroy someone who has wronged you.. This is a powerful song and an amazing band.

    General Commentactually in the beginning it goes "i guess you're what drives me" not "I guess it was right to me."

    General CommentThis is so perfect for one of my many moods.
    The best line is, "you and your bullshit are pushing me towards an explosion." It's like it put the words right in my mouth.


    If only more people could love this song.

    General CommentFirst off I would like to say that this song is BAD A$$!!!!!!!! I understand that yes it's about hatred and strong dislikes towards a certain someone, it could be anybody, Ex Girl, someone you just hate or both. Either way this song is put very good in lyrics and the music goes with it. Beatz RIP. Bayside lives on

    I love that part of the song! It's so straight forward and simple, but also brilliant and thet's what I love about bayside. Again the song is pretty self-explained. And the lines that I took out of the song pretty much means that he doesn't want to be anything like her, and everytime he sees her or sees a picture of her, he gets reminded of that. The gutair chords for this song is brilliant and that's one of the main reasons I picked up on Bayside. The chords are increadable, Anthony is awsome with words, the lyrics are breath-taking, and they've been though a lot to get where they are now. R.I.P BEATZ and I can't wait for the new Bayside album on Febuary, 7th, 07!

    General Commentbelieve13, i luv that part too, its my favorite

    yeah, i definetly think its a song about a relationship gone bad. it completely destroyed him, and now, after its over, he's singing about how much he hates her now.
